My sister gave me an article from Country Gardens Fall 2017 about Andy Chapman – stumpdust.com who makes and sells dibles. A dible or dibber as Andy calls them are an English gardening tool used to mark rows and create holes for seeds. This is my take on a dible made from osage orange and finished with BLO. Turning osage orange creates a very colorful pile of turnings. I wore a dust mask just in case this would be an irritant. It was a simle project completed in one evening. Delivered this one to the sister who gave me the idea. She loved it. Hope you will enjoy the posting.
Of the 7 apple bowls left from Everett's tree, only one was worth finishing and this is the one.Sitting by the lathe was this walnut blank that said it needed to be finished after being rough shaped 3 years ago….....so it did it too.They are both finished with EEE polish and Shellawax.Cheers, Jim
